Denali Expedition: Smith & Team Ascend Fixed Lines, Carry Gear to 16,200

Good evening,

What a day, what a day! One step closer to the summit! Today started rather frigid. The clear skies made for a cold morning. Our toes and fingers were screaming for warmth. But as usual once the sun hit camp, everything warmed up. The classic freeze or fry. It was a productive day, that started with a refresher on fix line travel then followed by a carry to 16,200'. Getting our gear up there sets us up for a move to 17,000' Camp when the weather looks good. We are going to be patient and wait till it looks good and then go for it. Tomorrow will be a rest day. The team is pretty good at chilling which is good on expeditions. Keep your warm toes and fingers crossed for good weather for us in the coming week!

Wow—you’re making quick work of formidable “hills”!  Motorcycle Hill must’ve been a beast! 
Looking forward (I think) to seeing entertaining photos from the Edge of the World… Steven, I hope you didn’t think it would be fun to jump in your photo op—eeks!    The “classic freeze or fry” is a new concept for me, and yet another reason to admire Team Smith’s fortitude and determination.  17,000’ camp awaits!
